selected pieces from Louder Than Words Series by Barbara Walker 

"The artist began this series as a result of her son Solomon’s experiences with police: 
Between 2002 and 2006, aged between 17 and 21, the black artist Barbara Walker’s son Solomon was so often “stopped and searched” by the Birmingham police that it came to seem disproportionately significant and she began to record the situations in her artwork. At the end of each search, Solomon was presented with a yellow A5 copy of the official police form recording the questioning. The forms, combined with newspaper cuttings of seemingly racially motivated events, sketches of city sites and meticulously drawn portraits, now become the main background focus of Walker’s graphic “Louder Than Words” collages. It is this contrast, between officialdom’s authoritative and…dehumanising paperwork on the one hand, and a mother’s quite exquisitely sensitive recording of her son’s particular features on the other, that affords the series a rare poignancy.”

my favorite tidbit about rome is that in the mid-1800s one of the popes didnt like the statues in rome having dicks so he ordered them knocked off. fast forward to the last decade or so and art historians in conjunction with the vatican are trying to erm. restore. the statues. but the dicks were just. kept in a box. so art historians are going around rome, with a box of dicks, trying to match them up to their owner.
